    Baseball America top prospects by League

    Leagues announced so far:

    Midwest League:
    #3: Robert Stephenson
    #9: Jesse Winker

    Pioneer League:
    #2: Phillip Ervin
    #6: Ben Lively

    Arizona League:
    No Reds prospects in the top 20

    The two players rated ahead of Stephenson, #1 Byron Buxton and #2 Carlos Correa, were the top two overall selections in the 2012 draft. Stephenson was the top pitcher on the list.

    Winker was the #3 outfielder, trailing Buxton and #6 Albert Almora of the Cubs, the sixth overall pick in the 2012 draft. Good recognition for Winker, who was clearly one of the best players in the league as a 19 year old.

    Ervin gets placed about where you would expect in the Pioneer League.

    Lively being ranked that high as a fourth round pick is a statement that his exceptional season was not a case of a college pitcher with fringy stuff dominating younger players, but more a case of him showing legitimate stuff.
